Sights/Tours

See our comments on the carriage tours in the Charleston introduction. They are still worthwhile even though you don't know where you'll go. Fort Sumter Tours, see where the Civil War began. Drayton Hall, 3380 Ashly River Rd., the oldest preserved plantation house open to the public. Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens. Highway 17, Mt. Pleasant. America's most photographed plantation. Edmondston-Alston House, 21 East Battery Built in 1825 it is a wonderful example of the elegance of 19th homes in Charleston.. See Middleton Place under "Special Things"



Galleries/Antiques

There are over 28 art galleries in the Charleston area, here are four that I have enjoyed; Charleston Harbor Galley, next to the Planter's Inn on Market Street. Ask for Danny. Waterfront Gallery, 215B East Bay Low Country Artists, 148 East Bay Street. The Wells Gallery, 103 Broad at King, Smith Killian, 9 Queen Street.

Charleston, particularly on King Street, is rich with amazing antique shops. Geo. C. Birlant & Co. 191 King Street is nationally known, Queen Charlotte Antiques has some of Charleston's finest finds and the King Street Antique Mall has some 40 dealers over nearly 10,000 square feet of space.





Shopping

The Farmer's Market, Marion Square is a fun place Saturday mornings from April-December. Food, crafts, all kinds of great things. These are some of my other favorites, although there are a lot more. Cooks! 194 East Bay Street (http://www.charlestoncooks.com/). Calls itself the "maverick kitchen store". Great stuff, cooking demonstrations and classes. Duma's Men's Store. King Street. This is what men's stores used to be like. Not much you won't find here and much of it is unique. If Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and the City) lived here she would shop at Shooz, King Street and Bob Ellis, 332 King (http://www.bobellisshoes.com/). Ellis carries great men's shoes as well. Stop in at the Mad Hatter, 90 N. Market Street (www.thehatter.com), for, you guessed it...hats! Check out the exclusive candle lines at Candle Lover's Delight, 58 Broad Street. (http://www.candleloversdelight.com/). Harbor Specialties, 190 East Bay, has everything nautical. (http://www.harborspecialties.com/)
